I began this blog as a means of holding myself accountable to eat up the stockpiles of food I have in the house before I buy more. I hope to break the habit of purchasing food when I see a “good sale” without thinking about what I already had at home.
My self-imposed rules require that I only purchase ingredients called for in recipes that will use up something I already have. In addition, purchases of fresh produce and dairy products are allowable.
I am now down to 9 jars.
Does anyone out there know if food banks will except home canned food? At the rate I’m going it will be another year and a half before the jam is all eaten.
Along the same lines, in January I had a stockpile of 6 boxes of Chex cereal. They are now gone after making myself several batches of Chex Mix to snack on.
The final batch had no pretzels and also lacked rice chex but it’s still pretty tasty.
I’ll be back Thursday with my Thrifty Third Tursday report.
